The Key is an immersive narrative that won the Tribeca Storyscapes and the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. It uses embodied metaphors and dream logic as a mode of storytelling, and these innovations are extremely effective and powerful as reflecting by the experience winning the top awards at Tribeca and Venice. The director and producer Céline Tricart is a lucid dreamer, who sees virtual reality as her preferred medium as expression since it’s the closest to the experiences that she has has within her lucid dreaming experiences.
I recommend waiting to see this experience before listening to this podcast episode. It will be available to be seen at Oculus Connect and it should also be available on the Oculus store before the end of the year. We unpack the metaphors of the piece, and talk more about her process of creating it, and using dream logic and metaphor as a mode of spatial storytelling.
